Postdoctoral researchers of all nationalities, who see their long-term career perspectives in Germany, will be given the opportunity to combine employment at a German university with a research stay abroad. The support is provided for 18 months, of which the first 12 months have to be spent abroad and the remaining six months in Germany (reintegration phase). Due to social security stipulations it may not always be possible to start the research stay abroad at the very beginning of the funding period. Alternatively, the option of 1 month in Germany followed by 12 months abroad and 5 months in Germany (total funding duration 18 months) may be chosen.
The 2016 call is closed. We will keep you informed about future calls.
